Other Details: As a TEAM HFOT participant, you will be the web master of your own pre-established, user-friendly donation site, which should make reaching and exceeding your goal very simple. You will easily manage your own donation site, solicit donations online and in person, monitor your donation totals, and send e-mail thank you notes to all of your donors. You will be able to personalize your own donation site with pictures and text. Everything is all set up for you - just register to start the easiest and most gratifying fundraising event you'll ever participate in.
Fundraising Minimums (by Oct. 28, 2012):
Charity Marathon participant - $500
Pre-Registered Marathon Participant - $250
Pre-Registered 10K Participant - $250
(Pre-Registered participants already have obtained their numbers through MCM and should register on the HFOT site under the applicable pre-registered icon to join TEAM HFOT!)
If you are using one of the HFOT charity spot marathon numbers, there is a $92 application fee that is collected when you register on this site. HFOT then sends all registration fees to MCM and will register you online - this does not go toward your fundraising commitment. When registering, please be sure to use an email that you check frequently - almost all communication is done through email. In September you will receive an email from MCM with your confirmation number and e-confirmation card that you bring with you to the MCM Expo to pick up your bib.
